Highlights: Exchanging on the Range

Participants at the 2011 AAW Convention in Wichita will be sure to have some “take home” value. One of the activities planned for the opening night of the convention is to have an exchange of t-shirts and mugs. The t-shirt exchange is geared toward collegiate members but due to the small number of collegiate chapters, all young adult/professionals who are 30 years old or younger are encouraged to bring a t-shirt depicting their home state. The mug exchange is for all participants over 30 years of age. These individuals are encouraged to bring a coffee mug depicting either their home state or something related to agriculture. Participants will exchange their t-shirt or mug for a new one brought by another attendee. T-shirts and mugs do not need to be wrapped or packaged, simply bring them with you to Wichita! The process and instructions for the exchange will be explained during Thursday night’s Chocolate Bar event.

Up-cycle Style Review

Style Reviews are nothing new to County Fairs, but the AAW Convention has a new event this year. AAW members are asked to submit an entry for the Up-cycled Style Review. To participate, you need to up-cycle a garment/outfit and be willing to model it during the Style Review on Saturday night at the County Fair Banquet. Up-cycling means that you utilize an item of clothing that is: vintage; purchased at a thrift store; outdated in your closet; or handed-down in need of repair. You then find a way to repurpose, reuse, restore, or recycle the clothing item. The thriftier, the better, and heirlooms are welcome! Once you have selected a garment/outfit to up-cycle, you then need to, 1) write up your (very brief) story of how/where you found your entry 2) explain what you did to up-cycle the item for current use/wear, and 3) a description of the entry (as you would for a 4-H entry at a style review). Please e-mail these to Jean Goslin (dbrokenbar@msn.com) by October 15. All submissions will be accepted. 
 

 


Looking forward to November 2011~ See you in Wichita!
